Butterfly release

on June 23, 2013

My daughter, S – Age 4.5 and I have been doing a caterpillar-to-butterfly project over the last few weeks. Honestly, I don’t know which of us was more excited…

I could not stop watching these little ones like an expectant mama. I never did anything like this as a child!

The caterpillars arrived in two tiny self-sustaining cups where they remained until they were all cocoons. We transferred ten delicate cocoons into our butterfly aviary.

In about a week? Tiny miracles began to emerge.

Today we finally released them. It was wonderful to see the awe and kindness of a child watching a butterfly cling carefully to her finger!
